There is a difference between things that are unexplainable and unknowable.
I cannot explain exactly how love works, but I have been deeply in love with Jessica for more than half of my lifetime.
I can’t fully explain how a daughter is able to melt her father’s heart; however, with barely any intentional effort, Amber and Madelyn can melt mine.
If someone asked me to give a technical explanation for the law of gravity, I would utterly fail, and yet I can demonstrate it perfectly, simply by standing still.
Some of the most complex things in life are beyond adequate explanation. They have to be known.
I cannot explain God to you.
I can talk about Him. I can tell you about my experiences. I can point to the creation and some things that could seemingly only have come from His limitless imagination. I can quote Scriptures and preach sermons, but at the end of the day, God must be known.
He is not an idea or a hypothesis or the Jedi’s impersonal “force.” He is a person—THE person—and Jesus showed us what He looks like.
In Colossians 2:9, the Apostle Paul said, “In Christ, all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form.”
In John 1:14, the Apostle John said, “The Word (Jesus) became flesh and made His dwelling among us. And we have seen His glory.”
And in 2 Peter 1:16, the Apostle Peter said, “We were eyewitnesses of His majesty.”
What about you? What would you say about God? I know you can’t fully explain Him either, but who do you know Him to be?
He is waiting to be known, and those who seek Him always find Him.
